    Im trying to figure out the following phrase :

    "Winking is fun and has an UNDERLYING CONSPIRATIONAL OVERTONE that is sexy"

    I know "underlying" means "subyacente" but I don´t know what that mean even in spanish !!

    May you help me with this ?

    Thanks in advance.

    "Subyacente" significa algo que está debajo de la superficie. En tu frase se puede tomar como algo "oculto", "escondido".

    ¿La otra palabra no será "conspiratorial"? La palabra "conspirational" no existe pero deduzco que tiene que ver con "conspire" = "conspirar".

    "...un significado oculto conspirador...."
